I travel quite a bit for work and usually bring a fishing rod or two to fish during my down time. Sometimes I'll have an extra day or two. But others I am kind of stuck at a hotel or conference facility, but will fish at a nearby pond, canal or pier. In these instances, it can be really hard to find bait, as I don't have a car, may be in a downtown area, etc.
Does anyone have a good traveling bait to use?
I usually improvise -- I save items from meals, or bring some white bread. I have used Gulp products with mixed results. And I often have flies or lures. But sometimes and for some species, it's hard to beat worms or live bait, and finding live bait when you are in a town 2,000 miles from home, without a car, is challenging. And spending time tracking down bait would mean I wouldn't have time to fish.
Anyhow, if there are good products that you like, let me know -- either for freshwater or saltwater pier fishing. Thanks.
